That Footloose remake that no one asked for and everyone keeps forgetting about (okay, maybe that’s just me) is still moving forward, and we have new images to prove it. The updated version stars relative unknown Kenny Wormald as protagonist Ren McCormack and two-time Dancing with the Stars winner Julianne Hough as love interest Ariel Moore — the parts originally played by Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer.
The new photos show, among other things, Hough looking cute in cutoffs, Wormald looking like a slick city boy, and Dennis Quaid and Andie MacDowell as Ariel’s parents. Check ‘em out after the jump.

Craig Brewer’s remake of the classic 1984 Kevin Bacon film Footloose, starring Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough, is scheduled for release in October of this year. When it was first announced, though, a group of filmmakers got so upset that Hollywood was needlessly remaking another great movie they decided to beat them to the punch. 54 filmmakers broke up the original film into segments and, last summer, assembled all those pieces into one brand new movie. Our Footloose Remake has been playing independent movie houses across the country for several months now but, just this past weekend, the whole movie made it online.

Warner Bros. is setting up a remake of the 2008 Argentine romantic comedy Un novio para mi mujer as a star vehicle for Steve Carrell. The comedian is producing, and WB hired Mark Gibson and Phil Halprin to write a script based on the Argentine film. A Boyfriend for My Wife would see Carell as “a timid husband [who] believes the only way out of his stifling marriage is to get his wife to fall in love with another man, so he enlists the help of a legendary yet unlikely Lothario.” [Variety]
After the break, Footloose and Vamps both make new hires. Read More »

Our long national nightmare is over! The Footloose remake finally has a cast. Now I can rest easy tonight. Mostly because no one I care too much about is in the movie, which Craig Brewer (Hustle and Flow, Black Snake Moan) is still directing. OK, there’s Dennis Quaid, playing John Lithgow’s role, but he’s been in worse. The rest of the names, each of which is sure to thrill you in different ways, after the break. Read More »
